Good place to start or end your career
A & P Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Springfield, MOJuly 2, 2014
This company allows you to gain knowledge needed to further yourself as a Mechanic, but it is also a good place for a person that is looking to retire soon due to its low stress and relaxed yet efficient atmosphere

great group of workers. Horrible management
Aircraft Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Bentonville, ARJune 25, 2014
Not sure how much longer this company will be around. Not sure why anybody would work here. Starting pay is around 16 per hour. Look around you can find much better jobs. Benefits are also terrible. Fly for free? NOPE. Work nights? YEP.

Maintenance Hanger of the Eagle's life
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Grapevine, TXApril 6, 2014
Union time is the best. Clock in at certain time and always clock out at a certain time. Co-workers are the best. Fun and easy going group of guys. The most enjoyable part of the job is done with your task and chill out. On the other hand, the hardest part of the job is getting us to be on the bottom of the todum pole...and of course getting use to the night life of the third shift.
Pros
fun working schedule with easy advancement to management
Cons
third shift and the night life
